ScanalyzerPL High Precision Phenomics

ScanalyzerPL Discovery Platform

Bench top systems for lower throughput requirements and the budget conscious. Maintaining LemnaTecs core system flexibility coupled with the delivery of precision data addressing research needs.

For all low-throughput applications with manual sample exchange, the ScanalyzerPL combines compact design and reproducible imaging techniques with the comprehensive control of the LemnaLauncher software.  

Test containers ranging from beakers for ecotoxicity to trays with plants, smaller plants in pots or even highly reflective samples. Depending on the test purpose, 1 or 2 imaging sensors can be mounted. The bench top platform is available with different back and top light modules. Results may be managed – as with all other Scanalyzer systems – on database servers or even in a small database on the same computer.

Measured parameters for Plant Phenotyping - Plant Phenomics

Various parameters for plant phenotyping can be derived from the images aquired with all Scanalyzer Platforms. These parameters can be used to create a digital phenotype and are highly correlated to bilogical traits such as: Leaf area, Chlorophyll content, Stem diameter, Plant height / width, Growth rate, Stress pigment concentration, Tip burn, Biomass, Internodal length, Color, Leaf rolling, Plant Architecture and many more...
